issues of city government from pension and payroll tax reform to some of the most important discussions on how we fund a lot of our public services, whether that finding different revenue streams for our parks, are trying to find new ways to fund public transportation in the city. we're very happy to be working with mayor lee and the board to address a lot of these issues. this will clearly be a busy year for us. another component of our work is connecting the city's robuspro o assistance with our many business partners. this is a core part of mfac original purpose in san francisco. we are focused on building this capacity once again. as everyone here knows, the nature of how cities are doing business is changing. fundamentally. costly federal and state mandates continue to squeeze local budgets. increasing costs are forcing discussions about how we provide services. technology is requiring that we move more quickly than we have in a long time. building a network of partners to support our city government at this time will be more important than ever and will be critical as we were to e
to achieve efficiencies in economy of scales we think in workers compensation for the cities you have the report before you the budget department has made some excellent recommendations which we are planning to administrator as part of this contract. >> would you look to add anything to that brief presentation? >>> i would just concur we have two separate workers compensation for the m ta and for the rest of the 70 and milky and i talked about this a year and decided that we could do better for all of the cities by joining force and is i had experience in my last role of finding ways of reducing workers compensation costs has been going down for many city agency and is the workers comp sayings has been going up for the m ta and so there is benefit for all of us coming together and that will save us all some money. >> okay do we have a budget analysis report? . >> good afternoon madame chair and supervisor kim and we have made some recommendation that is d h r is in concor dance with and by $799 to account to the december 1st start date of the agreement with us and m ta and to
conservative assessment with the growth of 3 percent. and then the next piece is the city. so when you look at the total sources, and you look at the total uses, you can see in here is 2019, you start with 6.2 and it declines to 8 million. so the idea is that the prior year's deficit will be funded when the surplus of all of the other buckets have appeared. and then when you go to sinking funds because that is later in the year, because the certain here is the 2046. the idea is that income and if you add the 10.7 million the city is committing to pay and you take into account the sinking fund it should be paid at that service, so we are having them prefund the year. and then the stablization fund and with the office and the revenue division, they did an analysis showing what in the last decade what the loss has been in terms of the revenue of the loss of the recession and it seemed like the 15 million was an appropriate number to have as a reserve to support the transaction in a term through the event of the revenues that they don't come in as we would expect. so we also negotiated that the
, as an attorney (inaudible). of course, i litigated against the city for some years and got convinced that maybe that does not end up in all of the best results. so i got enticed by (inaudible) to start working in it and... required the people in the city government who wanted to do better but simply did not know how. the passion was there. the passion from our communities have been there for many, many years. and so, fast forward 20 years later i am the mayor of this crazy place and i tried... (inaudible). and i think the great way of doing that is to model new ways to an old passion and as people who want to solve problems and people who have passion to get other people involved in the community and government and people who have a passion to help others. people who have the passion to pledge the welfare of the city ahead of their own success. that is what i want to see happen in government. and so, a lot of it is called innovations because, guess what? i learned very quickly, from years of working with christene and others, innovation is not just about technology, it is about a spirit of bein
in san francisco because san francisco is one of the most innovative cities in the galaxy, and it's a very great place to be the home of the challenge america summit, the first-ever challenge america summit. so it's now my job to introduce our first speaker of the night, who is going to officially kick off the first-ever challenge america summit, somebody who has been verylfe instrumental in creating a movement around innovation in san francisco. just a few months ago, announced october as innovation month inla whole lot of work on, you know, creating a@g real ecosystem for entrepreneurs, for governments, for everybody to create new ideas and new innovations. please join me in welcoming mayor ed lee to the floor. >> [applause.] >> thank you. thank you, josh. welcome, everybody. now that i know where i'm at, i want to welcome all of you, i want to of course thank the night challenge -- night rover challenge, nasa, of course, for being here. i also want to thank s.p.u.r. again for hosting it. you know, when i started working with s.p.u.r. many years ago, i knew they were a spacey pe
would fund that med assessments will repay the city for those deficits. the next one is the stabilization fund, we know which hotel and revenues that are volatile, so the city negotiater will travel that will fund a stablization fund for future losses in all losses in revenues. and the amounts of $15 million and the goal is that as we move that portion of that $15 million it gets replenished and so it will be maintained through the term of the cod. in addition, as you know, the term of the district expires in 2045, we are proposing that we sell cops through 2047. typically when you sell bonds >> once they are satisfied this could go back to fund the future development and capital improvement to the center. so if you look at the cash flows, you will see that the number include the med pairs, we are going to use a combination of commercial paper with certificates of participation being used to take that out and we also are using general fund operation in this current fiscal year, aappropriated $1.7 million and there is a proposal to request an additional in this calenda
, the city will reimburse warriors for improvements to infrastructure capped at 120 million. funds are restricted to three sources we have discussed. proposed operations and maintenance, we have reached out to city departments. the police funded the cost estimates are to be determined. we will be in -- the cost will be associated with calls for service during events and non events. responses to illegal vendors and such. fire anticipates no direct fiscal impact from the project. number of staff and hours worked will not change as a result of this development. as mentioned by chief lombardi the san francisco department may contract with warriors for emergency services. certainly if they are co-located, that makes sense. no impact to the project as golden state warrior also pay to maintain open space they create. for dpw and mta we are currently working with both those departments. there will be parking and service officers. there will need to be traffic and cleaning services and other amenities determined as we move forward. as a parenthetical, we will get into this, peter albert is
believe that there is tremendous public benefit, but job creation, and city, general fund creation. this process today is just the beginning of a long process. we will be loved with a great amount of community out reach and public communication, because we believe that not only will this be a great benefit for the community, but also for the neighborhood. i leave two blocks from the center and i do care about the neighborhood that i live in and i believe that this enhancement will not only make the center bigger but a bigger player and a better piece of our neighborhood. >> i just want to point out some of the economic facts. two billion dollars in direct spending in san francisco economy has already been lost. between 2010 and 2019 because the center was not big enough. these were groups that would have come to san francisco but decided not to because there was not enough space. the increase and average daily rate will be immediate and a long term, each time that we expanded and build one of the two buildings in the past, mascony, south, north and west, the revenue has grown and s
high school, san francisco city college and ending up at the academy of art university. as a child i remember how exciting it was to ride bart it was first completed and they a nickel to ride a bus. my son nicholas, 23, my daughter mia, 10, because of my professional background i am well-suited to serve the san francisco community and to help you seek consensus. as a board member i would hear every case with an open heart. during my 15 years as a small business owner in the sunset district i have always listened to clients, neighbors and fellow business owners. with that knowledge i believe i have a better understanding after the responsibilities of business owners not only to their patrons but the neighborhood in the community. because of the many relationships are forged over those years in small business it was an easy transition to real estate. most of all i am most proud of the fact that after several hundred transactions of not been a party of any mediation, arbitration or litigation. i feel that because of a professional experience as a realtor for over 40 years
. welcome to our emergency operations center. as you know we generally meet at city hall but today is a very special day that you will learn about as we unfold our agenda and thank you again for coming. i'm going to turn the table over to mayor lee who is going to give some opening remarks. >> thank you. good afternoon everyone and welcome to our turk street emergency operations center. first of all i want to thank everybody. anybody wearing orange gets a special treat in my eyes today. anyway we're still celebrating and i never knew that wearing orange and the giants and sports will be so closely connected to what we do in emergency management but it is and it is for good reason because our city's success is really dependent upon inviting thousands more people here to enjoy our resources here in the city, to tax us a little bit on it, but this is what we do as a great international city. all of you have a very distinct role in all of this and it's my pleasure to begin telling you how proud i am and the months of september and particularly october have all been full of great e
, brazil, the third largest city in the world. in this anatomy of a mega-city, we'll explore: the urban geography of immigration and ethnic diversity, thsquatter settlements and self-construction. sao paulo, brazil. with its crowded boulevards and massive skyscrapers, it seems awealthy as any city in the world. sao paulo is unique among latin american cities. in the early part of t, when places like rio de janeiro copied traditional european styles of construction, sao paulo was following a distinctly american model of urbanism. imitating the forms of chicago and new york, sao paulo built upward,gro. but in a huge ring around ty slies a very different,gro. urban environment. here, stretchingoriles, is a city of self-built structures in various stages of completion. they line hillsides and rocky streets where some of sao paulo's newest immigrants struggo build mes om brick and cen where some of sao paulo's alaide and her family came to sao paulo from northeastern brazil.

is such a crucial piece of the promise that the city made to their youth. the success and college access and career readiness for all students. the promise is tenacious due to the deep cuts. and securing credit recovery for the students is a necessary step in fulfilling our promise. we are aware that we live in challenging sometimes and mun municipalities across the state are tackling issues. this appropriation is an investment in our youth and as a youth worker and advocate for all students, i humbly ask you to support our students and approve. >> miguel, you are in another set of speaker cards. i will call other speaker cards remaining. monica florez mrs. yong. rene antavares. please approach the mic. >> hello, i am the education advocate for chinese education. and i work with a lot of chinese families with english learners. and the data shows that 69% of english learners in 11th grade are missing requirements or off track to graduate in 2014. and that's overwhelming over 500 student. and because of the additional english classes the students have to take. they are unable to fulfill the requireme

[cheers and applause] and they certainly live up to this motto. when i see young people, all of the city supporting giants gear it's about the impact of this team. it is hard work, perseverance and hard work and work with each other. did bruce bochy and these 25 guys quick when they lost the first two games against cincinnati? no. did they accept the inevitable with st. louis? no. they carried on with determination and experts and pundits pr
. you know who you are. if i can give more to the city, i will. thank you. [applause] >> they have extra photographers that travel with them. let's hear it one more time for jocelyn and her family. thank you very much. [applause] >> i graduated from the university of california berkeley with a degree in civil engineering. i started with the department of public works in 1984. in 2003, i was asked to come to san francisco public utilities commission to take the meat on the program. i'm responsible for all the large capital projects for water, waste water, and power. it's about $12 billion of capital projects. we have a lot of projects. our water system improvement program, 80 products that span seven counties. we have a staff of about 400 city employees and about 500 consultants. puc is really embracing technology. we wanted to make sure we really had a system that would elevate all issues so we could address them in a timely manner. as you know, time is money. we have a construction management information system. it is a great tool to help us address construction and make it successful,
records of any kind relating to discussions with any other agencies. the references to the san jose city attorney's office are dated 9 months after that. but i think what is really important is that there is a, i think, a reference in an e-mail that it was mr. st craw who spoke to the city attorney about taking these cases. so what we don't know is how this magically happened, nine months later. there are also no e-mails or other written communications of any kind internally within the staff or with any of the commissioners with one exception which i will give you in a moment. so there is no way to track how this all came about. >> it is obvious that none of you were directly involved in the decision, which considering that it involved your... it had to be completely transparent and it had to be one that everybody would accept. i did find an e-mail from the chairman. it surprised me. it said, it went to mr. san croy. read shaw's complaints is there not any reason that we can't release san jose's analysis about why st san croy's allegations fall. i don't know much about ethics but i know
above and the storm brewing off the coast. day two in daily city, one filled with spraying -- >> people play there or walk their dogs. >> doesn't look like it today. >> not any more. >> reporter: buried, a critical one in the park. today, the hunt to find it got underway. meantime, romero is talking about this massive hole in the hillside, the engineers deemed it stable, the focus is on erosion control. we are basically trying to create a buffer zone around. basically the mud will stay until the weekend. right now, we are fighting the weather. >> >> crews are digging to divert the incoming rain off the hillside and right into the storm drain into the park. drain crews eventually found out and cleaned out in the afternoon. even so, residents concerned about the hillside. >> does it look stable to you, right now? >> no, i don't think so. >> reporter: crews put some hay bails on the sidewalk to separate the mud in the street. coming up at 6:00, we'll tell you what some residents are doing with the cars that were once nearly buried in mud. >> >> and we have more pictures from the mudslide i
compliance officers to the city administrator's office. then you have you guys in the middle of the situation changing the rules without really getting the input from the lbes. nobody who is not a san franciscan should come here and say, i spoke to some lbes in san francisco and they kind of agree to go with the flow. that doesn't work. we don't want to badger sfpuc. but the fact is we lost on the waste system improvement project, and we were not, i repeat, not lose on the sewer system improvement project. because i have over 500 young men, i brought some of them here. i don't want to fill this chamber with some strong men. i don't want to go there, but we will not lose unless we have meaningful discussion with the union involved. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. yes, sir. >>> thank you, commissioners, art jensen with bosca. i think this is a great thing the commission did when they extend it had to a regional program to include workers outside san francisco that are paying two-thirds of the water bills and contributing to the success of the system. one question i had about the wo
lovers which there are countless many in the city and having an area where the dogs can play with their guardians and having a natural place for this to happen. you see all of the elements happening here and i want to thank the team and the agencies working together and with community and ledge and the department of the environment is here as well (railroad noise). >> yes and all positive activities. the railway station is historic and it will remain that way, so again welcome to heron's head park. by the way for those of you who don't know why it's named this way is because if you ever have a chance to get above this area and see it literally is shaped like a heron's head and this is part of the honoring of our waterfront area. it's a great investment and of course it will lead me to say with the responsible, and this year is our proposition b which extends another great investment of $195 million to many other areas including the south east sector of open space that we got to take care of, and modernize. this is what rec and park does very well with dpw with all of the
of an enabler this body has been, it enables city bodies and personnel to evade their daoulties under the law and to hide that from public scrutiny. the whistle blower laws are not be used to protect the whistle blower but to protect the target. they are being used to hide the true facts of the investigation and to allow the city agency and employees to evade their actions. they hide the extent and the validity of the investigative process used by the ethics staff and the public records law are always intended to disclose rather than conceal public matters. instead these laws are purposefully misinterpreted to protect the agencies in question but also the ethics staff. as far as you not having a conflict of interest, let's look at the arts commission when they got the report from the civil grand jury that listed what they had done, including spending $300,000 on things that they had no legal authority to do so. charging fees, that they had no legal authority and fire the cultural director and replace the head of the commission. the bottom line is if you were a commission and you
the comments. basically what i found on a lot of these city commissions they want to take credit for everything that goes well and avoid responsibility for anything that isn't going well. they want credit for showing up. but they don't want to be bothered with a lot of the work. and we had one member of the commission when there was an argument going on tell one of the witnesses, when they were referred to one of the documents that have been submitted to them and they said, well i don't need to read the documents. and it is time and time again and the reason that i do this is for one simple reason. there are a lot of people who getting up in front of a public body especially on public television, are afraid to do it. they are just afraid to come up to a body and say, you know, i don't like what you are doing and that is just another part of the first amendment to petition government to readdress the grievances. when i started coming here, i tried to be polite, but when you are polite with you folks it gets you nowhere, you get someone who said that well, we follow the law if we have to and you
plan that we wrote for this city. it was praised up and down the coast. you have a better one now, and could you reach that little book on top? yeah. and in my navy training -- when you get in an airplane you don't get in and the key in. you put this on your lap and do all the check offs. well, having been a chief executive i know their lips get tired when they read more than one page. sorry, but you know, but anyway i put this book together, and i mainly for the mayor and his primary assistants, so when bad stuff happened in the middle of the night you could pull this off of your bureau and go to the first three or four things that you have to do in order to save lives and property, and i understand this has a grandfather. okay, which is great. so thank you very, very much. it was a labor of love. i like doing things. i like doing things when people tell me i can't do them, and i like working with people who are different and boy did i ever get a load of that here, and it was wonderful, so thank you mr. mayor. you're very kind. thank you all, and i wish you well, and ag
a time to think and be engaged. i think this is being prioritized by the city but i would like to have that balance as much as we can. given the warrior's time line with lease expiration in oakland but also understanding a lot of hesitation and concerns i think our residents are asking. i do really want to commend the residents of our neighborhood for being incredibly incredible and respectable and reasonable. i think it's been outstanding. the level to which our residents have beening a gaouing to participate in the discussion versus outright saying we are against the project, we will not participate and oppose at all costs. i think that speaks to the level of respect and dedication people have both to their neighborhood but also to the city as a whole. so i think there are a lot of great things moving forward. i think the design is beautiful. there is a great architect in place. i think warriors have been great in initiating this outreach process with the neighborhood. you know, rick, i think you have been a great spokesperson for the warriors and i appreciate your ability to listen
, i will make a suggestion... i mean i am... i do find it meaningful that the city attorney reminds us that we have no legal conflict either individually or collectively. i have no obligation to the executive director, the executive director obligation is to the commission as a group and to the city and county, not personal. i can understand why we don't have staff to investigate their supervisor, that makes complete sense. so in trying to... i just want you to create a window where we didn't just rush to do something that thoughtful people were flagging for. but as we were trying to construct it, as a question of legal conflict and of our confidence to do it and our responsibility to do it, which is the other part mr. gibner raised. there is the past practice, the past example involving the deputy director, where we did seek counsel from others so that it would not be a staff colleague doing the investigation, but this body handled it. and i quite honestly can't remember if i was on at that time, and if so, whether we analyzed this, i came on in 07, probably not in time for that item.
with our city departments and i want to thank our dpw folks and their team. mindy, lena, fantastic work in managing this project. [ applause ] and another superb partner in phil ginsburg, rec and park, thank you. [ applause ] this is going to be an amazing space that ties together the joe dimaggio park and you will hear more about that. it's wonderful to know that it really creates an amazing civic space for north beach and it wouldn't happen wouldn't fantastic support from the community. julie christinsen, a shout out to you. [ applause ] the. so throughout this ceremony, we're going to celebrate and pay tribute to all of the wonderful folks that are making it happen. so without further ado, person that not only has prior director of public works, city administrator and now wonderful mayor for our city; who has been terrifically supportive of our city, mayor ed lee. [ applause ] >> how is everybody doing? [ applause ] [ applause ] well let me begin by saying luis, congratulations but you know, when you are as successful as you are have been with the library commission it's like win
this out. the city of san francisco sfgtv meeting of the san francisco county board of appeals occurring november 14, 2012 will begin shortly.[break] >> the city of san francisco sfgtv meeting of san francisco board of appeals occurring november 14th, 2012, will resume shortly. >> we are resuming the november 14th, meeting and we are on item number five. >> commissioner, i can't remember, it is a senior moment. i believe that i was talking about the purview that this board may have with respect to a couple of items. one is, sequa and the environmental review and i totally understand where the law is on that and that the basis for sequa determination and subsequent appeals is not at this particular board. and at least it has not been since the charter has changed a couple of times with respect to the powers of this board. the second issue related to, it appears to be one of the major issues for many of those in opposition, tonight. and it deals with the over all management of the open space and with the combination of risk assessment and valuations of the existing trees. and that is also
yes. i would. >> now, the city still doesn't know why that kite ruptured. they say the city believes age had a factor. >> thank you. just how much rain will hall when the storm comes in. we're live with a look. sandhya? >> yes. check out there are clouds just high clouds going to live doppler 7 hd. and you can see there is moisture reaching the ground. so high clouds now, but a big change is coming up. rain coming with the first storm. daily city beginning possibly friday could be seeing as much as 41/100ths of rain by saturday morning. going from friday, saturday. under a half inch. looking at rainfall from friday through monday, the daily city could see an inch and a half of rain. the storm is expected to move in friday morning but this isn't the only storm. there are a couple more storms to go. i'll talk about that in just a few minutes when i tell you about clicking to a wet pattern. >> there is some photos from heavenly, opening today much to the delight of skiers and they've had their snow making machines clanked on full. we're live at north star, another resort that opened tod
. as we do capital improvements to projects city-wide. the natural areas, program is a management program, a 20-year management program for how we manage certain land scapes and so some of this work is in the edge of the natural areas, but it is separate as discussed in the environmental evaluation provided. >> i think something was put on the overhead for you. >> it does fall within the natural areas program. >> how many of the proposed tree removals are in that area of the 58? >> i could... i would have to make a quick count. but... that is where two of them fell recently, this is an image of that area. i could try to do that and then come back up. >> so all of the green dots in that natural sort of area just directly it looks like the vast majority are coming out of that area? >> no. >> because they are new. >> the green ones are new, the red ones are removed. i would have to do a count. i would say, no just roughly looking at it, approximately, 15 or 20. >> okay. i would have to do a count. >> okay, thank you. >> >> thank you, scott sanchez the planning department. i will be brief, it
misquoted and she may have incorrectly relied on deputy city attorney improper letter to the sunshine ordinance task force in which he wrongly combined two or three of dr. derek kurr's complaints under one ball of wax wrongly. he made a mistake when he did that. in section 1040 is not whether disclosure is permitted, it is whether disclosure is forbidden. jerry made that lettering error. how a deputy city attorney can confound forbidden can permitted and then, deputy city attorney herrick fell into the same mix is really disturbing. >> let me ask you about that mr. hau. because c3-699-13, appears to use the term to the extent permitted by state law. >> i draw your attention, commissioner hur to section 1040 b. i'm assuming that state law takes precedence over 699-13. i would assume, sir, that you would know that 1040 should take precedence over the city charters or this particular government conduct code which is not even at the city charter level, if i am right. >> 1040 b, clearly states, a public entity is a privilege to refuse to disclose official information... unless disclosure i
able to let it go either. so yesterday our city celebrated a huge victory in the world of sports; right. and today we're celebrating another victory and for the waterfront, for nature and you can feel it. yesterday after the noise and the craziness -- breathe; right. like today -- you can feel it. it's slower. it's calmer and if you look out there you absorb the place, and we are in one of the most special and beautiful parts of the city and to celebrate an incredible project. san francisco's waterfront is more than just simply the border of our city. in its edge lies san francisco best recognizal opportunities, our most engaging parks and enormous potential to have one of the vibrant waterfronts of the world and in partnership we are doing this along all sides of san francisco for all san franciscos to enjoy. these projects as the mayor and monique said are made possible by the parks bond. four years ago it was approved by 72% of city voters and allowed us to address more than a billion dollars worth of deferred maintenance needs in our parks and to cultivate what once was an
residential became a fully permitted use planning in the city basically put out the welcome mat to residential uses. you basically said you're fully permitted as a right. come down to south of market. buy a home. buy a property. please expand that property. this is not the scenario you've often heard where people move down to the area of an airport and then move in at the end of the runway and they're surprised to find out there are airlines taking off. this is sort of the reverse of that. they moved down to a neighborhood where the city said the welcome mat is out and then the airport moves to their backyard. that's a little bit different, but our basic policy was we're not going to pull the welcome mat out from anybody, not from under the entertainment industry or from under the neighbors who moved in and bought property and planned on being here forever, so the basic premise of the western soma process was no losers. everyone starts off with what we got going right now and then we will work on seeing how we can enhance that for everybody. the sally proposals that cory presented to you

on the north side to the left represent the city's fire boat fleet. there is a placeholder on the north and south side of the pier that is envisioned to accommodate water taxi, ferry landings and private craft in the lower right-hand corner of the site. we are very excited about having this enter into the review so these ideas can be fully vetted. the design will evolve as that takes place. >> in order to do the fiscal feasibility analysis it was important to come up with a broad outline of the proposed business terms for this deal. so the warriors in the city in port work to come up with a conceptual framework. that is not before you today as part of the resolution. i think it is important to take a few minutes to describe the framework that forms the assumption in the feasibility report. the framework says this. the warrior also privately finance all development on piers 30, 32 and seawall lot 30. the city and port will reimburse warriors for agreed upon improvements for city-owned infrastructure. expenditures for improvement are reimbursable expenditures are capped at $120 million. f
, cafes, coffee shops and sandwich shots that are currently there and the city was allowing them through legislation is that was passed a couple of years ago to come in poach, our customers and putting them in harms way. do we want to see more empty food fronts? i think that we need to look at this and these two permits in particular this is symptom mat i can of our problem. >> the police department have a pedaler permit. they require them that is going to sell similar, that is similar to a store to be 600 feet apart. yet we have passed a law that allows you 50 feet. they are thinking about reducing that to 50 feet. we love you small business mobile food truck operators and we don't care about you, brick and mortar, cafe, and coffee shops. we ask you to over turn the decision, it was unwise, they have the discretion, but it was unwise, there is plenty of opportunities for coffee service in that 300 feet and this is just not right. it is unfair to our small businesses that have been here in many cases many years, employing people, paying taxes, have been the back bone of the local communi
standardized location. and that is to establish three evening school sites across city at the high schools. $200,000 would be for the community satellite centers. to provide cbos for the technological need and the center set up and training. this is one time. the 150,000 is to hire two people to coordinate this. one specifically with online technology knowledge to make sure we get this implemented and implemented well. this would be positions that continue being funded by the school district. and as we go through our annual budgeting process. they would be allocated into that. so again this is one-time funding. the student counseling sessions are the extra boost we are doing right now around the community. extra outreach sessions with families for counselors to really focus on this group of juniors. the targeted support is again to give us a boost for this current class of juniors. who are the first to be hallowed to these graduation requirements. and to be sure that we have that extra support or the opportunity to give that extra support. like we had the opportunities in summer school. >>
